I think you left out all information that would be helpful in answering your question.
Are you unit testing?
Are you integration testing?
Are you testing user interfaces?
Is this for a website? an application?
What language is the application written in?
This has to be exaggerated, I don't believe that all of Windows source code is anywhere near 32 TB.
This article claims their newer git DBs are 300 GB. That's two...
Without seeing the code, it is impossible to have any meaningful insight. Suggestions of threading APIs and such are not going to be useful. You can write perfectly good multi-threaded code in standard .NET even without using a lot of fancy .NET features. It is likely a symptom of poorly written...
As long as you search for your problem first and post what you've tried to do, stackoverflow is a great resource. If you post duplicates or "I need code that does ___" questions, they will probably get closed.
To clarify.. both were correct depending on your definition of the golden ratio. Short to long side, or long to short side.
It's as if you are arguing if the ratio is 2:1 or 1:2. Except that with the golden ratio the reciprocal looks very similar but with different sign making it appear as a...
Don't cheap out and buy $400 machines, your developers will definitely notice and talk shit about it. 6-8 developers cost quite a bit of money, buying good machines for them is not a lot money and will make your devs happy.
Desktop or laptop development depends on the culture of the company. My...
Nope, never heard of it. I doubt anyone here has taken courses there.
On the other hand, I have heard of MIT before.. and they have free courses:
I use a combination of:
ohmyzsh! (customized shell prompt, gives git branch, working directory on the right side)
scm_breeze (git shortcuts.. 'ga' for git add 'gl' for git log etc.)
a better git log (much better looking git log in the shell)
in linux at work. I haven't tried it on OS X...
Keep it simple, there seems to be a lot of confusion and over complication about threading in this thread.
Here's what I might suggest. Come up with an algorithm and implement it using a single thread, such as a divide and conquer algorithm. (merge-sort, matrix multiplication, etc.). Time...
Wiseguy, no offense, but your information about locks is completely incorrect. I'm only calling you out on it because I wouldn't want the OP to be confused.
Locks or mutexes do not, in any way, turn off multi-threading and force code to run in one thread. In fact, the opposite is usually the...
I once saw code where a developer used do... while (false) loops haha.. I wouldn't suggest this:
int error = doSomething();
error = doSomethingElse();
// do some work
// Clean up
I think at this...
Why do you want a contract job? If you want more diversity of experience why not get another full-time position somewhere where you can diversify your experience? You know, one that is non-temporary and includes benefits?
Software engineering is probably the hottest job market around. If you haven't found many jobs being advertised I don't know what to say.. where are you maybe? If you aren't getting much interest in your resume, then that's different but it sounded like you were not finding jobs you were...
I'm for free market, but there are times when regulation makes sense.
To be fair, there are times when the average person IS too stupid. If it is cheaper not to be safe and the average person doesn't care, all companies must disregard safety to keep competitive prices.
hey I'm going to admit that I didn't really read this whole thread but.. typically you write an image out and then later save it using the proper encorder to PNG format. You don't "write png pixels". You write pixels in standard RGB/bitmap format and then the encoder saves it compressed etc.
As far as hardware design and FPGAs... I worked for a small company that would have been interested in someone like you. They worked with software defined radio (making spectrum analyzer and similar products). So... I think there exists the possibility to find someone looking for that.
This doesn't quite answer his question. No, not everything is free, completely.
Visual Studio has "Express" versions which may not have some super fancy features for software development teams. Also, the license agreement states you should only use it for non-commercial programs or commercial...
My suggestion is C#. Visual studio is a great IDE and you can make GUI's easily, it should run on any windows box (because they all come with .NET now). It's a great language, with a great framework, and it really has a ton of language features that will expose you to most programming concepts...
They are mostly talking about whether or not the code is compiled completely into machine instructions x86, x64, etc. Or, whether the code is run through an interpreter. Python uses an interpreter. To run the program, you have to download and install the python interpreter.
So it is a cat that just logs GPS coordinates of Wifi access points. They then just look for ones that are unsecured or use WEP or some bad encryption...
Was anyone under the impression that it would be hard to find an unsecured or poorly router in a well populated area?
I've heard this depends a lot on which team you work for... but yeah it is a concern of mine. I will just have to see how it goes.
I start on Sept. 22. I have been doing a ton of work getting ready to move. Eulogy do you work there?
To me it looks like you should refactor that into separate methods. Disconnect() etc.. in fact your psuedo-code / comments is basically sorta how you need create your methods.
Too lazy? I mean I'm VERY lazy.. but all you do is highlight the code, right click -> refactor extract method.. Type in...
Do they throw different types of exceptions by chance? If so you can just have multiple catch blocks one for each type. You may be able to combine 2-3 this way.
You can also refactor your code and make it call a function which has the try/catch in it to reduce nesting. But it isn't necessarily...
Thanks for the info... The commute is going to be foreign to me. We don't even have public transportation here!
I was looking at the Mountlake, Edmonds, Everett, Lynnwood areas. It appears I don't want to be East of Lake Washington or else have to go across toll bridges or congested bridges...
They don't need ipads or tablets. Tablets are more of a information consuming device, not creation. In business someday those students will need to learn to create reports, documents, spreadsheets, or whatever. Those are tasks that involve creating things. A computer lab with desktop computers...
